  • Classic Regan from the master by 8

    I'm a fan of comedy and Brian Regan is an exceptional comedian because he doesn't swear nor talk about adult subject. I'm tired of comedians who have nothing to say outside of sex or sex related. He can make a mundane situation into a hilarious comedy with perfect timing and painstakingly chosen words for the maximum punch. Squint with a half smile is extra.

    Here, he starts with a joke about his sudden aging, but he looks good to me, bit looks like a punk rocker. Then goes on with his usual topics such as doctor visit, clever animals and space. Lottery joke was little weak and should have finished with "how to pay for the Reiki massage" which was the best bit. He delivered another top-notch comedy as always and I will watch 10 more times waiting for the next special.

  • Not the same Brian Regan by 2

    Watched last night and was disappointed. The jokes were too long and sounded more like a quirky guy making observations and rambling about them. If this was a comedian I didn't know I would have turned it off 10 minutes in.

  • His best in quite a while by 9

    I've been a fan of Brian for about 20 years now. But honestly, I thought his last couple efforts were pretty subpar. Lots of overly corny dad-type jokes. This one however was much more clever. No dad jokes, more personal stories poking fun at his own OCD & social anxiety and observations about the crazy world we live in. My wife and I laughed out loud throughout. I Walked on the Moon will always be my favorite of his specials, but I consider this one on par with Standing Up and The Epitome of Hyperbole.

    And as always, he kept it G-rated, which is hard to find in to comic scene today. Highly recommended!

  • Good For Regan Nuts by 7

    I'll admit, the first 10/15 minutes are a bit slow. So if you don't love that, that's okay. Just make it to the part about OCD and it's nonstop laughs from there. And if you love the first 10/15 minutes? Well, it just gets better!

    Regan's jokes are always so comforting to me in their silliness and predictable parameters; it's still the same old Brian but new and different jokes that fit exactly what you'd expect from him. Some may not find it funny anymore as he's still telling the same kind of jokes as he was two decades ago, but if you love his style and you never get sick of it you'll love this special too!

    Nothing will ever beat his classics, but I don't honestly think any stand up ever lives up to their first couple recordings. If you have 3 great stand ups you're in an elite tier of comics and I wouldn't call this one great, but it's definitely good and definitely worth your time.

  • Brian doing what he does best by 9

    Regan's always been among my top 3 comics in the world, and gets huge props for always being clean. However, for the last 15 years, it felt like he did the same 20-year-old material over and over.

    So it's refreshing that this is actually all-new material (to me, at least), and pretty great one at that. You likely won't be fainting of laughter if you're used to dirty comics like Bill Burr, but Brian's material is hilarious nonetheless, or more so - his self-deprecating delivery. His talent of telling any story in a fun way hasn't faded a bit.

    Speaking of fading, I first thought that his hair was purposefully bleached or something, I'm glad he addressed it immediately, like the smart man he is, lol. It looks great on you, Brian! Looks cool and youthful, actually.

    Anyways, this special is a new thing by one of the greatest comics out there, and especially for Netflix, it's beyond must-watch. Because let's face it, most specials Netflix tries to push on you are mind-numbingly bad.

    So, good for Netflix for getting this special produced for themselves.
